Default Would a dealer accept my car as a trade in?

I have a 2000 Mustang GT here's the deal

It used to be a v6, however i bought a donor car and essentially made it a GT

all the badging and exterior and interior is the same, however it's a manual now with a 2V 4.6L and the posi-trac rear end, i searched but couldnt find any answers, im wondering if they'd even take a car thats been modded so much...any thoughts?

It all depends on the dealer, you will get a better answer than anyone here can provide by asking them...

they will take any car, however they will most likely give you the value of a v6, as that's what the vin says it is.

Yup, they'll run it by the V6 VIN for their purposes... and just to give you an idea, most dealerships won't give you more than about a grand trade in on it.

you might get 2-3 out of it if it's in really good shape. but like everyone else said, you're gonna do a lot better if you can private sell it.

Some dealers here will tell you outright they do not want your trade, or offer such a low value that you will not acept--and if you do they can make a bit or at least break-even at auction...

yes and no. some dealers will take it but these guys are right it is still a v6 vin so it will be a lot less. and if they do take it would probably go off to auction anyways. but yes sell privately and make more money!!
